PGI 2016 Announcement

Mark your calendars!

On April 11, supporters of literacy will gather in Fredericton to honour Mr. Robert Irving, our 2016 literacy champion.

The Peter Gzowski Invitational (PGI) events for literacy are major fundraising events held in every province and territory.

The Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick has raised more than $1.6 million dollars for literacy since the inception of PGI in NB in 2002. Funds raised through the event go directly to youth, adult and family literacy programs around the province, including support for our schools, libraries and community groups.

Join us as we present Mr. Irving with the Champion of Literacy Award and celebrate the ways in which he is working to raise literacy scores in the province and build a strong foundation for future success in New Brunswick.

Event tickets are $150 individually, or $1,200 for a table of eight. Purchase yours now by contacting our Acting Executive Director Lynda Homer at 506-457-1227, or e-mail Lynda at with the subject line “Ticket Request – PGI Dinner”
